Writing Prompt: Interview

We’ve all done them. You get interviewed for jobs, getting into university, in some medical situations, before you have a religious wedding,  (some first dates even felt like interviews),… What you have is a situation where two or more people are trying to work out if they’re all the right fit, whether it’s for a job or a school, etc. You can have a lot of fun with a scenario where people say or do the unexpected. (remember the classic job interview scene in Trainspotting?)

Try this:

1. Set the scene (where does this take place, a cafe, a meeting room, a lift)

2. What is the person (or persons) interviewing for?

3. Have something random happen (dialogue or action)

4. Play with the results. use your imagination and make it as dark or funny as you’d like.
